Dated 5 June 1846 this Othello playbill says that it is "positively his LAST APPEARANCE but one in Liverpool". 

In the course of the evening he will deliver a FAREWELL POETIC ADDRESS, written by himself expressly for this occasion"

The second play on the bill is Karfa; or, Three-fingered Jack. This has The African Roscius in the title role.
